The Vision.net USB/RS232 Interface allows integration with the Vision.net Network using standard RS232 communication. The USB / RS232 Interface has the ability to receive and transmit data in two modes: Vision.net Protocol (binary) and Show Control Protocol (standard ASCII). The unit will sense the incoming protocol and automatically switch to the proper mode.
The VN RS232/USB Interface Station is designed to provide remote access into the VN/485 network. It also provides for System updates (Room/Presets/Channels) when the system is first powered up or whenever a device (Rack, Touchscreen, etc) needs Room/Preset/Channel updates. It can also provide Room Status information to a connected Building Management System through its RS232 or USB ports. Room Status includes Room Active, Preset, Sweep, and Combined status. Additionally, it now supports VND configuration (Fixed ID, Mode, etc).
